Rail, Construction and Infrastructure Update

This week’s Rail, Construction and Infrastructure News:

Alstom and Amey are to share the £90m signaling contract awarded by Network Rail. The upgrades are crucial to the future operation of Crossrail (Elizabeth line) services as well as the modernisation of the Great Western Main Line. Alstom is contracted for the final stage of the re-signalling of the Great Western Main Line between Reading and Paddington and Amey for signaling power works between Paddington and Hayes & Harlington.

The JV between Interserve Construction and Doosan Enpure has won a £37m contract to upgrade Horsley water treatment works in Northumberland. The new treatment facilities will be built alongside the current 1970’s plant which will continue to operate until the new works are complete.

The new £15m Royal Navy survival centre has been awarded to Galliford Try. The survival centre will include a new Aircraft / Amphibious Vehicle Underwater Escape and Survival Training facility, which will train personnel in escaping from a submerged aircraft or amphibious vehicle. The new centre is planned to be opened in December 2017.

Also this week a number of Civil Engineering contractors have warned that the lack of investment in the road network is halting growth, not just in the Construction industry but for the whole UK economy. Many have seen their workload reduced compared to the same period in 2015.
